500 Dead (Edit: Currently 545)
385 Squat (Edit: Currently 405)
260 Bench ( Edit: Currently 275)
Thanks for reading !

Laziest journal writer ever.
I like this journal though, I'll be able to keep track of your progress. Make sure you aren't getting to far ahead of me on anything... any by anything i mean deadlifts.
Also have you hit that 385 squat yet? or do you just put up numbers you "think" you can hit?
yes , i did hit the 385 squat. I was tired that day, so i should be good for 395.
Anyways, new workout today and new PR !

thanks. It was a grinder tho, almost puked. But that was probably cause I went right after lunch haha. Grip strength is improving tho !
Pullups: it was a high rep day for them.
haha. 12 is high rep. I have no endurance, i need to work on that. And my workout is a bit of eveything. A little westside (modified), and I'm doing the 5/3/1 program for squats.
Think about pure westside or pure 5/3/1. I have always assumed that others know more than me or you, so it might be worth trusting them.
Anyway see ya friday. 275 bench.. i think its about time.
